Mannington Mills has received special recognition from the Congress and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for reaching its centennial milestone and being named "New Jersey Family Business of the Year 2016" by Fairleigh Dickinson University's Rothman Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
"Family businesses are important not only in local communities but also on a regional and national level," said Keith Campbell, Mannington's chairman. "Special recognitions such as these validate the role that family businesses play in stimulating the economy, providing jobs and fostering pride in the American workforce because employees like ours are more than a number—they're part of a family dedicated to producing quality products day in and day out."
These latest recognitions coincide with Mannington's centennial year as it joins an elite group of family-owned companies—those in continuous business for 100 years.
Mannington produces the great majority of its flooring at its own manufacturing plants in the U.S.: 100% of its sheet vinyl and vinyl composition tile in New Jersey; 100% of its laminate flooring in North Carolina; 100% of its commercial carpet in Georgia; 100% of its rubber flooring in California and Florida; about 90% of its hardwood flooring in Alabama and North Carolina and 80% of its luxury vinyl flooring in Georgia.
A commitment to the world outside of Mannington is central to the company's core value of "do the right thing," according to the company. Reducing its impact on the environment through a reduction in water and energy usage, an increase in recycling and product life-cycles and other initiatives, has won the company accolades at local, state and national levels.
